In microfilm from The Hyde Park Gazette – Times newspaper, I found monthly reports of the titles of books added to the Hyde Park Library. Here is the listing for January, February and March of 1914.
This weekly newspaper was published from 1912-1924 . The yearly subscription was $1 or 2 cents a copy.
The microfilms to this local newspaper are in the local history room at The Hyde Park Branch of the Boston Public Library. Check with the adult librarian about viewing.
Be sure to check out the BPL’s amazing online newspaper resources .

The Friends are pleased to announce a community event related to this year’s 150th anniversary celebration of the founding of Hyde Park. Boston Women, Inc., is sponsoring “The Grimke Sisters in Their Hyde Park Years: Educators, Aunts, and Voters”, by Louise W. Knight, Visiting Scholar at Northwestern University, on Saturday, March 3, 2018, 2:00pm-4:00pm, at the Menino Arts Center, 26 Central Avenue, Hyde Park.
The Grimke sisters, Sarah and Angelina, along with Theodore Weld moved to Hyde Park, then called Fairmount, in 1864. Originally from Charleston, South Carolina, the sisters’ years in Hyde Park marked a fulfillment of ideas supporting abolition and the women’s rights movements. Ms. Knight will capture these culminating years of their lives as educators, aunts and voters in her presentation.
Boston Women, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization based in Hyde Park, Massachusetts. It sponsors the annual “Women Amongst Us” Tea honoring Boston’s inspirational women every March to celebrate Women’s History Month. HP150 is a community celebration of Hyde Park’s 150th anniversary of its founding, sponsored by Blue Hills Bank Foundation, and by corporate sponsors including the City of Boston, SC Group, and Spin350 Creative. Hyde Park celebratory events are planned for April and June 2018.
